Billy Crawford returned to the “It’s Showtime” stage to join show host Vhong Navarro in his birthday performance, which also featured their group Kanto Boys.

The noontime show’s studio was filled with cheers as Crawford and Navarro danced to their “Billy-Vhong” song, Sisqo’s “Incomplete,” Spandau Ballet’s “True” and DJ Khaled’s “Take It to the Head,” as seen on the show’s Jan. 30 episode.


The duo was also joined by Kanto Boys member Luis Manzano. John Lloyd Cruz, their fellow member, was supposed to be with them but unexpected circumstances came up. Actors Joshua Garcia and Pepe Herrera filled Cruz’s absence.


Crawford gave his birthday message to Navarro after their performances, with the former “It’s Showtime” host recalling his moments with the latter including their “prayer time.”

“Ilang taon na akong hindi nakaka-Billy-Vhong. Sobrang na-miss ko si Vhong; sobra-sobrang nakaka-miss,” Crawford said. “Alam ko naman na alam ni Kuys Vhong kung gaano ko siya kamahal. Kahit anong mangyari ay nandito lang ako.”

(I haven’t danced to the “Billy-Vhong” song for years. I missed Vhong. I really missed this. I know that Vhong knows how much I love him. Whatever happens, I’m here for you.)

“Vhong, thank you for always being humble. Thank you sa pagiging totoo mong kaibigan sa lahat ng mga kasamahan mo. Nandito lang kami para sa’yo,” he addressed Navarro.

(Vhong, thank you for always being humble. Thank you for being a true friend to us. We’re here for you.)


Manzano likewise spoke about how he values his friendship with Navarro.

Crawford’s visit to the noontime show came a few months after he and show host Vice Ganda reconciled on “It’s Showtime’s” “Magpasikat” segment.

The two of them sparked allegations of a falling out after they unfollowed each other on Instagram in 2019, the same year Crawford left the show.
